Same thing here in the US and many other parts of the world. The problems regarding the idle on DLE 20 are pretty well known/documented in many strings here on RCU. To ask everyone to repost them would be a waste?

The problems are easy to work through if you understand them. Despite it's short comings, the engine still has an outanding reputation regarding everything from raw power available to fuel economy!

If you have a more specific question, please feel free to post it.

I have a DLE-20 and it has the best idle of any two stroke gas engine I've ever seen. I didn't do anything to it. That is the way it came from the factory.

The fundamental problem found with most gas engines of any size is generally the same. The user combined with an extreme lack of understanding.

many dle 20 has a problem with idle may be by the altitude in Mexico
failure is Idle not stable you carburate it and it brecames again inestable.

Same failure result in small gas converted engines so I make and special Intake for the carburetor, and solved it, when i was contact for the problem in DLE 20 cc I used the Special intake and the problem was solved, Easy to carburate.

Can i like this like you do on FB!! I have guys that fly with that i just cring everytime they come out because they are always turning the nettles like they are glow engines and then complain about how hard gas is. I do 2 things before i every mount an engine. i change the plug and solder the choke flap hole. i always run a couple of minutes on the ground before the first flight to make sure nothing has changed.

Get your hands on some True Fuel !! AKA SEF small engine fuel. I use the 40:1 mix.. It's in the green can from that brand of True fuel.. I use it in all of my gassers and have no trouble what so ever.. You can also leave the fuel in your tank and it wolnt seperate like the gas you get at the pump.. Also could be a carb issue.. The first time I was around this little Dle 20 I was very impresed with it. I still cant believe how big of a prop this engine can swing. Good luck guy's.

I use gasoline with quality synthetic oil. I don't worry about emptying unspent fuel in my tanks. Doesn't bother my carbs or my engines. Better on my wallet even if I buy gas with no ethanol.

Stihl HP Ultra@50:1, mid-grade pump gas, flip and fly. I don't empty the tank either for the same reason that I don't drain my truck's tank after I drive it.

NOT a reply...just a thought.

It seems like right from the start of this thread the replys was of a so what nature. Maximiliano Galvez is a real good machinest and a all around good engine man. You guys should at least be more polite and not reply with smart remarks that mean nothing. He evidently found something in his working on the DLE 20cc engines and is willing to share. You guys that do not need help with your engine....be silent. Let the guys that really want to learn do the replys. Mr Galvez did not post for the heck of it.....he wants to help is all. So be more kind please. I have seen his work....its top notch. Capt,n

Hi Max,

I am interested in what you have found out about carburetion of the DLE 20 at higher altitude. I'll be flying mine at about 7200 Ft.

Thanks,
Ben

OK
Sorry about My bad English when I say I like It I mean I like the part or I want you seend me the part []

The part now i know the name is a velocity intake for small cc engines. Im proud beacuse here I solve my problem in small engine coverions and then with some people with dle 20s

May be this is a simple part, but I desined it in computer, and made the mold in CNC presiction.

the intake is an acceleration stack and inside has a vacuum camera that let your carburetor ventury works better

It is not a big one Is a small one for small engines
